Hook the Reader I think to introduce hooks in a story the student should have the option of playing with writing with different hooks. To do this you could challenge them to use different strength levels of hooks by inviting them to go "fishing". Minnow=little hook, Bass Fish=medium hook, Shark=huge hook. Could be done with a sticky hand and fish on the wall. :) Schools Writting, Anchor Charts, The Reader, Classroom Ideas, Anchors Charts, Second Grade, Writing Hooks, 4Th Grade, 2Nd Grade
